In treating grief and loss, it is essential to facilitate a safe, respectful therapeutic interaction, in which clients are able to tell their story, process and express their feelings of grief, explore the meaning of their loss, and revise their relationship with the deceased. Additionally, using cognitive and behavioral therapy techniques enable people to develop skills for coping with the anxiety, depression, and difficult emotions that may arise as a result of the grieving process.

We were not created to navigate the turbulent waters of grief alone. When grief threatens to overwhelm, when you feel as though you can no longer go on, it may be a wise idea to reach out to have someone swim alongside you until you reach a new shore. I can help you cherish the good memories, creating space to reflect on and accept conflicted emotions from the loss of a complicated relationship, and in your own timing support you as you gradually let go and reintegrate to life without your loved one. This is an incredibly painful and often confusing place to be in, but you don't have to be here alone.

For those of you experiencing separation or loss, I am sorry for what you may be going through. I wish I could fix it and make the pain go away. Actually though, there is great value in experiencing these feelings and I am honored if you are reaching out and willing to face them. Good for you. Sadness, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance come with the territory and whatever you may be feeling is important. Please stay courageous and share. Help is here.

Loss can be experienced in many different ways - death (expected or sudden), ending of a relationship, and/or life transitions. Well meaning friends and family can try to get us to "move past it" faster than we are ready to. These interactions can be hurtful and sometimes add to our pain. Working through issues of grief and loss can give you a safe place to express your feelings so that you can work through your disbelief, pain, and anger to a place of healing.

You may feel confused, stressed, depressed, or crazy as you experience loss. Understanding the symptoms of grief is essential for gaining healing. A trained counselor can help you understand the normal reactions to grief and sort through the trauma related to your loss. A therapist can help you to understand your emotional states of denial, bargaining, anger, and depression associated with grief and make sure that your depression does not result in self injury or other unsafe thoughts or behaviors. If you want to feel normal again, then allow a counselor to help as you go through your grief. Not only will you feel better, but your family, friends, and coworkers will be glad you sought help.

We all have losses in or lives, but each loss is different, and there are so much emotions involved in it. Sometimes, we choose to move on without actually grieving over the loss because it is just too painful, but that can creep up on us and affect us in different areas of our lives, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I will walk with you through the rough place, so that you don't have to do it alone, and can remember your loved one and celebrate his/her/its life without feeling that big dark hole. The grieving process can often even bring you new strength.
